## VBA To Change Background Colour In Free Form Depending On Text In Cells?

Apr 3, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with several freeforms. I would like them to change backgroundcolour, if the content in a cell is equal to another cell.

Basically I would like my shape "Freeform1" to change backgroundcolour to RGB (0, 180, 0) if Sheet1.Range ("A1") = Sheet2.Range("D3").

If it's not the same content in both cells, I would like the freeform to remain unchanged, that's RGB (79, 129, 189).

This should happend automaticly, so I don't have to click the shape to make it happen.

## Excel 2010 :: Change Cell Colour Depending On Date In Another Cell

Jan 9, 2013

I am trying to create a sheet in XL 2010.

In Column A each cell will contain a date (differnet from other cells in that column) when inspection was last done.

Column B is when the weekly inspection is due.

Column C is when bi-weekly inspection is due.

Column D is when monthly inspection is due.

Column E is when 6 monthly inspection is due.

I need a formula to change the colour of cells B, C, D & E when each inspection is due depending on the date entered in A

I am hoping its possible that the cell colour can stay for 2 days after the due date and then return back to blank after the second day.

For example if cell A1 has a date of January 1 2013 then on January 8 2013 cell B1 turns red then on January 10 2013 the cell returns back to normal.

A1
B1
C1
D1
E1

Inspection Date
Weeekly Due
Bi-WeeklyDue
Monthly Due
6 Monthly Due

January 1 2013
Change red Jan 8 & return blank Jan 10
Change red Jan 15 & return blank Jan 17
Change red Feb 1 & return blank Feb 3
Change red June 1 & return blank June 3

## Copy Fill From Another Cell That Is Formatted To Change Depending On Its Formula

Dec 10, 2012

As seen from my attached file,

The colour of the percentage cell changes according to its percentage. I would like the S/N cells to have the same colour as the total percentage cells automatically. (Even when the percentage updates)

Secondly, for the cells under "Target", if the target dates are 1 day before today(the current date on a particular day) and the actual date is not filled, the cell fill will turn amber.

If today is on or after the target date and the actual date is not filled, the cell will turn red.

However, if the actual date is filled, the target date cell will be filled green, overwriting the above two condition.

## Set Background Colour Depending On Variants

Dec 17, 2007

I need a macro that will change the background colour of a cell depending on whether it equals a certain variant. Let me explain.

Cells D8 to N8 will either equal 1, 2, 3 or 4. Depending on the value of the cells on row 8 (D8:N8) I need the above cells on row 4 (D4:N4) to have a different background colour.

If the cell on row 8 is 1, the cell on row 4 must have a green background.
If the cell on row 8 is 2, the cell on row 4 must have a yellow background.
If the cell on row 8 is 3, the cell on row 4 must have a red background.
If the cell on row 8 is 4, the cell on row 4 must have a blue background.

Therefore, if D8 = 3, D4 will have a red background. If F8 = 2, F4 will have a yellow background. And so on.

I need a macro that when ran changes the background colour of the cell range D4:N4 depeding on the value of the cell 4 rows beneath (D8:N8).
